    Listening to this podcast on my ipod one thing came to my mind hearing the discussion about projects and where the different next actions need to go. I often do write out every next action for a project, mainly because a lot of projects have exactly the same actions. And (my software of choice) lets me batch add those.

    But what I do is, all next actions that can’t be done before another one is done is going to the ‘waiting for’ list automatically (but with the right context and deadlines). As in ‘waiting for the previous next action to get done’. That way it will not clutter my next action list but all are recorded.

    After finishing the previous next action the status of the next will change. When I forget this it will always show up in the weekly review. Maybe this is helpful for someone just starting out.
